A LITTLE ABOUT THE BURKE & WILLS SESSIONS...

Recorded over 2 days, nestled away amongst the Victorian countryside sits the Burke & Wills Mechanics Institute.
The live sessions take a snapshot into solo and band workings, featuring originals as well as re-worked Blues songs by legendary artists such as J.J Cale, Jimmy Reed and Robert Johnson.

Low-down n dirty guitars slide, bend and wail as sounds of the Blues resonate throughout the lively space.

--
Big thanks going out to all involved!

Lenny Boyd (Bass), Jeff Crocker (Drums), Tony Priest (Drums). Damien Charles at @[664271920282934:274:Ghost Oak Studios] (recording/mixing), Mastering by Kathy Naunton of @[129239436996:274:db Mastering] and Graphics and Layout by Stuart Colafella at Artillery Designs.

Finally, thanks to the City of Melbourne and Fed Square Live for hosting the upcoming launch alongside their Free Summer Music Series.
